The governor of Puerto Rico has said that all those over 16 will be vaccinated against the COVID-19. Currently, only people 50 years and older as well as anyone 35 to 49 with chronic health conditions are authorized to receive a vaccine. More than 1 million vaccines have been administered since inoculations on the island of 3.2 million began in December.
“We continue to face a terrible pandemic, along with the entire world, and its consequences have been enormous,” said Gov. Pedro Pierluisi.
